So Long, My Son

Wang Xiaoshuai, China, 2019o

vBack

Yaojun and Liyun are a happy family – until their son drowns playing by a reservoir. The couple decides to leave their home and plunge into the big city. Their newly adopted son Liu Xing does not offer them the comfort they had hoped for either. Defiantly rejecting his ‘foreign’ parents, he one day disappears altogether.

Drei Stunden dauert dieses grosse Fresko, und das ist keine Minute zu lang. Die äussere Handlung um die kleine Familie ist das eine, aber darin spiegelt Regisseur Wang (Beijing Bicycle) die Geschichte Chinas um das Ende der Kulturrevolution. Geschickt verwebt er das Kleine und das Grosse, springt in den Zeiten und Orten. Zu Beginn glaubt man, nichts zu verstehen, am Ende möchte man die Familie nicht mehr ziehen lassen.

Matthias Lerf

Un chef-d’œuvre immense d’émotions, de vibrations intellectuelles, qui invite le spectateur, à travers le regard croisé de plusieurs familles chinoises, à interroger l’universalité du sentiment de filiation et le sens de l’existence.

Laurent Cambon

Le film a valu à ses deux interprètes principaux, Yong Mei et Wang Jingchun, l’Ours d’agent de la meilleure actrice et celui du meilleur acteur. Ils forment un couple bouleversant à l’écran, protagonistes d’un grand mélo qui est aussi une fresque sur l’amitié.
